By Thomas Kincaid
Gripe fast stand with your left leg first not farr
Incline your back and shoulders but beware
You raise them not when back the club you bring
Make all the motion with your bodies swinge
And shoulders, holding still the muscles bent
Play slowly first till you the way you have learnt
At such lenth hold the club as fits your strenth
The lighter head requires the longer lenth.
That circle wherein moves your club and hands
At forty five degrees from th[e] horizon stands.
What at on[e] stroak to effectuat you despair
Seek only ’gainst the nist it to prepare.
